The charming cottage is tucked away down its own private drive, next to a neighbouring farm where you can buy delicious fresh eggs and homemade cider. The cottage is set on the east side of the River Fowey near the pretty tidal creek of Penpol. Ideal for country walks and exploring the coast and beaches. To explore the north coast of Cornwall, to Padstow is around an hour depending on traffic.
The cottage is west facing, with sheltered patio and orchard beyond. It is near to the pretty tidal village of Lerryn, with its excellent local shop and slipway for launching canoes/kayaks. It is a 10 minute drive to the south coast footpath and secluded beaches of Lantic Bay. The river village of Boddinick is 10 minutes by car, where you can cross by ferry to the popular town of Fowey. Eden project and Lanhydrock gardens and house are 30 and 20 minutes away respectively and the character town of Lostwithiel with local shops and quaint antique shops is a 15 minute drive. The picturesque fishing village of Polperro and Looe for fresh fish are a 25 minute drive away, and inland Bodmin moor is a similar distance for walking and exploring. Polruan is another pretty village, opposite Fowey, with two good pubs and passenger ferry across to Fowey. The later is fun to explore the shops and cafes with excellent pasties.
The cottage itself sleeps 6 people, with a double bedroom and two twin rooms, all upstairs, ideal for a family. There is extra optional accommodation for two in our new separate Eco contemporary oak framed cabin with one double bedroom. This could be ideal for extended family perhaps grandparents or another couple staying. There is room for a cot for a baby/toddler. Both accommodations have super fast wifi.
The garden is private and well behaved dogs may be considered. Although the garden and orchard are surrounded by hedges it may not be escape proof. Note there maybe sheep in the nearby fields. Please consult with the owner should you wish to bring a dog.
The cottage has one bathroom with bath and shower, and toilet. There is also a separate toilet upstairs. Downstairs there is a good sized sitting room with sofas and a wood burning stove (wood is supplied) and piano for the musically minded, along with numerous puzzles and games for entertainment. The sitting room steps up into the beamed dining area looking out onto the garden. There is an oil run Rayburn which provides a lovely cosy warmth to this area (usually it is on in the autumn & winter months). There is also central heating throughout the cottage. The beamed kitchen has an electric oven and hob, with a dishwasher, a fridge/freezer, and washing machine.
Outside there is suitable parking for two cars. There is a paved patio area with a table & chairs for 6 and a sun parasol. The patio area is a real sun trap, lovely for sitting out for meals in Summer.A BBQ is provided and there are two sun-loungers and four fold up canvas chairs. There is also a historic well which for safety reasons is covered and securely locked up.
The optional eco-contemporary cabin is on one level, with a double bed room with en-suite shower/toilet and basin. The sunny living area is open plan, with the dining table overlooking the orchard and sitting area at one end. A self contained kitchen is about to be fitted ready for use in mid to late May of this year. The kitchen will have electric oven & hob, and fridge with small freezer section. Also there will be a private deck area at the end of sitting area through double doors. This is also due to be built with BBQ area by mid May.
